So much fun to work with them

When we're sailing, my biggest job is our animals πŸ™‚

Buana has to be fully trained, not just for shows, also for the casting and his job as social dog.

Every day I train a little bit with all three of them.
One of a time, I'll take downstairs (they're with us in the wheelhouse)

Buana begins with a big yodel, he likes it soo much..
He knows very much commants and trics and i'm a bit empty of ideas.. so now i'm teaching him from a distance, about 6meters away.

It's so nice to work with him because he likes it so much πŸ˜ƒ
He don't want snacks as a treat but he wants a hug… (crazy boy)

I've a whole list of things he's doing good..

  • Sit
  • Lie down
  • Flat on the floor with his whole body and head
  • Paw
  • Other paw
  • High five with botd paws
  • Higfive with one paw
  • high five with the other paw
  • Make a Bow, and stay till i say, free
  • come stand in front of me
  • Come stand next to me
  • Stand on two legs
  • Walk with me, trough my legs
  • Wave at me
  • Brush his head with his paw
  • Sit/Lie down and wait
  • Follow me
  • Roll over
  • Get me some toys
  • Touch, as I say touch, he touches my hand and so I can learn him so much
    I think I'm forgetting a few trics... πŸ˜•

From a distance Buana can:

  • Sit
  • Lie down
  • Lie flat
  • Wave at me
  • Brush his head with his paw
  • Make a bow

He never wants to stop training, but after ten minuts I say it's enough and i'm going to play with him..
If I say "i'm going to get you" (or in dutch Ik ga je pakken!!) he's going to run across the room so I can chase him, after some big idiot acts from buana he jumps at the sofa so I can GET him... I give him a hug and pick him op to go to the wheelhouse (thats just one stairs up ;))

Chafuko is more of a naughty one,

He gives his paws,
A hig five with one paw
he sits, lies down
he follows
he knows "touch"
And so funny is the twist!
He stands in front of me and I say Twist! than he makes as quick as possible a twist, with his little brindle but half in the air... hahahaha

Hailey knows sit, wait and lie down, much more I didn't practice yet. First she has to be fully happy, and herselve again.. I think that's almost now.
Yesterday I did some show training, and WOW she's so pretty πŸ˜ƒ
A little bit too happy but i don't mind that!

Are here some B's too that like to train??

What a great story, I can picture the pups now, out on the boats!

Thanks for sharing! I love your pack! πŸ™‚

thank you so much!:D

you know mine do πŸ™‚ well at least Kalusha & Thirza like to train tricks πŸ™‚
Jenson cant be bothered, and Lio neither hahahaha

I've only just started to work with my new one so i don't know how he will do. But my previous one would do only the simple things.

Buana have you tried to teach them to dance, since they like to do so much?

@Buana:

  • High five with both paws

High…ten?

:p

@mauigirl:

High…ten?

:p

Tillo loves to practise.. favorite trick: Kiss πŸ˜ƒ
And it all has to go in a hurry.. because he doesn't like to stand still and wait.. or the 'wait' has to be a commant :rolleyes:

An idea for Buana.. Let him sit and stay.. walk away.. call him to come and while he is comming, tell him to wait. He has to stop walking and sit or lay down. We are training this with Tillo and he's pretty good at it πŸ˜ƒ
